The Belize Tourism Industry Association BTIA Cayo Chapter held an important meeting on Tuesday night at the Cahal Pech Resort Conference Room in San Ignacio Town. For all those attending it was a learning experience to get a snap shot of what is currently affecting the tourism sector.

First to present was Rudolf Orio, who said that there should be all efforts to “…protect tourism, the goose that lays the golden egg.”  He invited members of the BTIA Chapter to work along with the bodies that are now in place to ensure public security such as the People’s Coalition, Neighborhood Watches and Volunteer Special Constables. Rudolf Orio also recommended to the group that a Tourism, Taxi and Village Watch also be formed to enhance security. (There is now one Business Watch in place for San Ignacio Town.)

Also speaking on Tuesday night was Gale Ozaeta from the New Destination Belize Magazine. According to Ozaeta the new edition of the Belize Magazine is coming out for 2018 to 2019 and will be published in house by the BTIA.

Some 20,000 copies of the News Destination Belize Magazine are produced and distributed in Europe, Central America and other key areas. It was also announced at the meeting that this magazine, which informs readers about what Belize has to offer, has now gone live at www.

Newly elected to the BTIA Chapter board as new officers were Cynthia Reece, Tanya Silva, Patricia Johnson, Misael Canto, Robert Harrison Anoushka De Boucherville-Brandl and Rhadine Choco.
